Helping your child with addition: The following thinking strategies are useful for learning addition facts:
Adding zero: The sum is always the other number. 8 + 0 = 8, 0 + 4 = 4
Counting on by 1 or 2: Find sums like 5 + 1 or 6 + 2 by simply counting on.
Combinations to 5: Learn combinations to 5 such as 3 + 2 or 4 + 1
Combinations to 10: Learn combinations to 10 such as 6 + 4 or 8 + 2
Doubles: Learn sums of doubles such as 4 + 4 or 6 + 6
Nines: When adding nines, the one digit in the sum is always one less than the number added to nine. For example 7 + 9 = 16, the 6 is one less than 7. Another example, 5 + 9 = 14
Doubles plus one: When addends are consecutive numbers, count on from the double. For instance, 7 + 8 becomes 7 + 7 + 1. Another example, 8 + 9 becomes 8 + 8 + 1
Sharing doubles: This method works when the addends differ by two. When this occurs, it is possible to subtract 1 from one addend and add to the other addend. This results in a doubles fact that has already been memorized, 7 + 5 becomes 6 + 6. Another example, 6 + 8 becomes 7 + 7.
Commutative Property: By changing the order, 3 + 4 to 4 + 3, facts can be recalled.
Helping your child with subtraction:
The following thinking strategies for useful for learning subtraction facts:
Fact Families: This strategy works when students understand the relationship between addition and subtraction. When students see 6 - 2 and think 2 + ? = 6
Counting backwards: This method is similar to counting on in addition. It isn't quite as easy. Students should only count back up to three.
Zeros: The pattern for subtracting zero is readily recognizable. 5 - 0 = 5
Sames: This method is used when a number is subtracted from itself; this is another generalization that students can quickly identify. 7- 7= 0
